Objective of the study is to test whether Daptomycin (6 mg/kg bodyweight) is non-inferior in treatment of severe diabetic foot infections (MRSA) in comparison to antibiotic treatment with Vancomycin (effective blood-plasma concentration of 15 mg/l). In case of microbiologically confirmed gram-negative co-infection effective antibiotic treatment according to microbiologic analysis will be administered upon medical decision in both therapy groups. The study will be carried out as a randomized, open label study.

  • Non permissible concomitant medication e.g. therapy regimen using several antibiotics
  • Contraindication for antibiotics
  • Dialysis essential
  • Pregnancy (to be determined by pregnancy test) or unsafe contraception
  • Neutropenia
